4 out of 5 eggsSilent, not too automatic

Pros: This little guy does an amazing job at cooling because of its well-designed fan blades which seem more optimized for static pressure and closely resemble the fan blades of a Noctua or Corsair SP series fan. Pretty silent!

Cons: At the lowest RPM, the fan emits a little stutter from the motor if you place your ears by it. It's not too annoying, but it adds to the overall noise. The temperature sensor doesn't seem to do anything but have this fan run at full RPM no matter how cool or hot it gets, which was disappointing.

Other Thoughts: Overall, it's not too loud, and not too quiet, but whatever temperature curve they're using on this fan is really sensitive and pretty much keeps than fan running at full speeds. I never saw it idle at low speeds. BUT, the build quality on this fan is very well done. It seems solid to the touch and doesn't feel like it would break down or stop working. It's one of those kind of fans where you just know it would be a work horse for a long time.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Quiet, long lasting, pwm for motherboards without pwm

Cons: temp sensor can be a pain to position

Other Thoughts: I've had two of these running for 3 and a half years and they are still dead silent. The temp sensor adds to cable clutter, but I find them really handy for when you want another pwm fan but don't have any available headers or a fan controller.

5 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: Very quiet, fairly sensitive to temperature change, flexibility in choosing where to mount the temperature probe.

Cons: Not totally silent but pretty close.

Other Thoughts: Without having a PWM fan, temperature control seemed to be the next best thing. I thought this fan was worth a try. I was slightly unhappy about a rattling noise but after the fan was mounted, the noise was reduced to the point where it was barely audible with my ear next to it.

I purchased two COUGAR CF-V12HPB thinking they were the ultimate 120mm fans only to have this fan put them to shame for less than 2/3 the price.

I had some Antec case fans that were extremely quiet but RPM was controlled by a three speed switch. This fan is quiet but will increase RPM if the temps increase.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing fans

Pros: Thees fans are completely silent. I have 4 in my case sitting 2 feet away from my head and I can't even begin to hear them.

Come with a temp sensor to dictate what RPM to run at. Even at higher RPM's the fans are still pretty much silent.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Could have came with screws along with the rubber connectors. The rubber are nice for sound dampening, but they look goofy sticking up out of the top of my case.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter than I hoped

Pros: Thermistor is on a lead.
Adjusts in small increments based on temp.
More sensitive to small temperature changes than a PWM fan.
Can easily position the sensor to leave it hanging in the open case air to adjust speed based on ambient temp.
Long enough to place it closer/on your CPU or GPU heatsink for more agressive temp adjustments.

Cons: A little slower to respond than PWM fans because it is temp based not load or CPU sensor based. Not really a flaw, just the nature of the design. Be aware of the differences before you purchase so that you are using a fan that is 'fit for purpose'.

Other Thoughts: Best used as an exhaust fan. These are great for general purpose cooling of your PC based on temp, regardless of heat source. GPU load, or CPU load, or both...it will create enough heat to effectively spin this fan up as needed.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very quiet, works well.

Cons: 3 pin power connector ONLY. make sure you have a spot open on your motherboard, because you'll have to do some modification if you want to run this directly off your PSU.

Also, wish it came with fan screws. the rubber tabs are kinda cool, and help with sound, but it would be nice to have the option of using fan screws. (especially since it would cost them all of what, $0.02 to throw 4 screws in the box?)

Other Thoughts: Does what it's supposed to do, just feel like if I'm buying a nice fan, it should have the same power options / mounting options that the cheaper ones would have :/

5 out of 5 eggsReally Good fans

Pros: Very Quiet. Easy Instal. No Screws required. Long sleeved connectors. Oh and did I mention Quiet!

Cons: The Temp Control Sensor is kind of long....

Other Thoughts: I have 3 of these inside my CM690 Case too provide airflow for my i7 2700k. They work great and are really quiet. Now i hear my Zalman 9700nt heatsink only. Soon to be liquid cooled.

5 out of 5 eggsTwo years old and still quiet!

Pros: I installed two of these in a Cooler Master Elite 330 two years ago, one in the front and one in the back. They still run quietly, even when they speed up.

The cable for the temperature sensor is wrapped and long enough to place it away from the fan.

I love a quiet computer and these are a great fit.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I will be ordering more for a recent build.

Cons: None.
